Best Practices for Detoxification: Sea-Onic Footbath Systems
The Science Behind Sea-Onic Footbath Detoxification Systems
Each Revive Cleanse power unit and the Sea-Onic array function by passing a current through a set of plates that are immersed into the footbath water (inside the footbath tub). The footbath water contains an added mineral solution, the Sea-Onic footbath concentrate, which closely resembles the complex mineral concentration of the ocean.
The array begins the conduction process by first producing both ions on the positive plate surface and electrons on the negative plate surface. This results in a safe, low-voltage charge that is applied to the plates by the Revive Cleanse power unit. The array has a total of three plates. The two outer plates have the same polarity while the inner plate has the opposite polarity. This is important in order to optimize the qualities of the footbath and the detoxification process.
Next, there are suitable components of the Sea-Onic concentrate in the footbath that will wrap themselves around these ions and electrons to form microscopic bubbles of water that will drift in the footbath. The liquid bubbles that come off the positive plate have a preponderance of active positive charges in them and their pH is less than 7. The liquid bubbles coming off the negative plate have a preponderance of active negative charges in them and their pH is greater than 7.
The different pH of these bubbles serves to produce a shifting charge on the surface of the skin as the various bubbles from the plates contact, in a random manner, with the skin. This helps to effectively absorb the bubbles through the skin. Once the bubbles are absorbed through the skin, the net pH change in lymph will depend on many details of both the current lymph composition and the minerals in the footbath. At this point, a detailed calculation of the resulting lymph pH is not needed. However, we intend to explain how this ends up raising the pH of the lymph after several footbath sessions.
Sea-Onic Footbath Concentrate
The footbath consists of a solution of the Sea-Onic concentrate in which an electrical current is passing through. Although there are visible bubbles of gas coming off the plates as the footbath progresses, there are also bubbles of liquid coming off the plates that are not as easily observable. These bubbles are tiny and some have only a few dozen molecules in them.
The liquid bubbles are short-lived, which is why it is sometimes recommended that the footbath water is gently stirred with the feet as the footbath progresses. This gentle stirring encourages the bubbles to come into contact with the skin of the feet before they dissipate within the footbath water. As liquid bubbles come into contact with the skin, the pH of the skin will fluctuate locally around the average pH of the footbath. This fluctuation ends up attracting bubbles of the opposite charge so that they can more easily attach themselves to the skin for penetration. These bubbles are also composed of hexagonal water clusters that wrap around the various oceanic minerals within the footbath. The combination of electrical attraction and small cluster size makes it easier for these tiny liquid bubbles to enter the pores of the skin and make their way into the lymphatic system.
Once inside the lymphatic system, these extremely small liquid bubbles will release their minerals into the lymph. This will generally raise the pH of the lymph towards the optimal value of 7.4. These liquid bubbles have a smaller cluster size and move more readily in the lymph. This, in turn, will tend to displace the old lymph that has a much lower pH and larger water cluster size. The old lymph gets pushed either towards the immune system or back into the footbath water, where it gets discarded with the bath water at the end of the footbath session.
It should be noted that there is a way to find out the pH of the lymph by measuring the sub-lingual, morning-rising pH level. This pH will slowly rise to 7.4 after a regular sequence of footbaths. This happens due to the improved oxygenation that comes from the lungs from the refreshed lymph. The pH level will stay at this healthy value indefinitely, provided that a suitable nutritional program is undertaken to maintain it. If no changes are made to the nutrition, and no further Sea-Onic footbaths are taken, the pH will ultimately revert to its initial low value (the national average is 6.2) and the sense of well-being will eventually dissipate.
The old lymph that gets pushed towards the immune system becomes easier to dispose of because the small liquid bubbles have a greater concentration of alkaline (oxygen-bearing) minerals. These alkaline minerals then feed the immune system and give it greater power to recycle unwanted components (toxins).
It is important to understand that the Sea-Onic footbath stimulates the detoxification process by creating a footbath with a greater chemical activity that delivers clustered water components, loaded with ocean minerals, into the lymph. As discussed above, these, in turn, will displace the old lymph and this displacement is the essence of the detoxification process.
In conclusion, The Sea-Onic footbath is one of the safest and most highly beneficial detoxification processes. This level of safety is due in part to the fact that this unique system does not require an actual current to be injected into the body, as with other detoxification modalities. This systematic process tends to displace toxins out of the cells and into the bath water, while also into the body’s elimination channels for recycling and/or disposal. Utilizing the Sea-Onic footbath will significantly enhance one’s wellness protocols and goals for optimal health.
